We recognize the difficulties that persons with dementia experience at Discovery Village. When your loved one comes to our Memory Care community, we’ll guide and assist them with a person-centered approach that’s been recognized among the finest in the country.
Our SHINE® Memory Care program curriculum is nationally recognized by the Alzheimer’s Association®, the country’s leading, voluntary health organization dedicated to Alzheimer’s care and research. The distinction is one that we share with a small and elite group of U.S. memory care providers.
SHINE® is a one-of-a-kind approach to memory care that employs scientific principles to improve engagement, comprehension, and quality of life for your loved ones with dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease and other memory-related illnesses.
With continuing education and specific training in memory care disorders, our nurses and licensed nursing assistants plan a course of inquiry for each resident that touches on diverse, essential parts of life. Our SHINE® Memory Care community is designed to help them restore and maintain what their illness has taken away. You can rest easy knowing your family members are in the greatest hands and receiving the highest-quality care, from nutritious meals to customized care and attention.
